NFL Draft Kings Guide (WEEK 9)

The three of you that follow this blog may have noticed that I didn’t post my Draft Kings results from Weeks 7 and 8. I briefly touched on it at the end of my Week 9 picks blog, but the reason why is because I’m a lazy idiot. You see, I was going to post them in one blog like I did with my Week 7 and 8 betting results, but turns out Draft Kings doesn’t save the match results for as long as I thought they did. I play multiple DK contests every night, so by the time I went back to transfer my results to the blog, they were gone. That’s my bad. I could sit here all night and write about me being an idiot until my hands cramp up, but its best for all of us to just to just move on. 

Anyway, Week 9 has already started, but seeing as I wasn’t really planning on targeting anybody in that Thursday night matchup, I decided to just wait for the Sunday-Monday slate. This is going to be a high scoring week as a lot of high power offenses are going up against shitty defenses, so let’s take a look at my position power rankings for Week 9.

Those of you with sharp eyes probably noticed a pattern throughout all 3 of my lineups, and especially Lineups 1 and 2. I LOVE the Lions/Raiders matchup this week. Both teams have a decent pass attack and also bad defenses against the pass. So long story short, I think this game is going to be a wet dream for DFS this week. Don’t take me going heavy on this game as a must, but I’d suggest it. 

As far as what players I think will have good weeks and thus played in multiple lineups, we have Leveon Bell, Kenny Golladay, Danny Amendola, Hunter Henry, Devin Singletary, TJ Hockenson (At $3,700, why not?) and Bills Defense. The safer move here would honestly be to fade me and pick some of the other players in my rankings. Putting all of your faith in a few guys is always a risky move, but then again, scared money doesn’t make money. 

That’s all for now. In all honesty, I rushed this a lot because I’m trying to get out the door to watch this Bruins game. Have a $100 on -1.5, if you don’t think I’m gonna watching this at my local dive with a plethora of rum and cokes in front of me, you’re fucking crazy. Good luck everybody, and as always, lets pray to The Fantasy Gods that everybody listed finds their way into the end zone at least once or twice tomorrow.
